It’s Monday and you know what that means: a seven-match AEW Dark: Elevation that was taped last Wednesday at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Excalibur and Mark Henry were on the call this week.
Lee Moriarty & Matt Sydal defeated JR Miller & Marcus Kross
Sydal and Kross started with an exchange of kicks that Sydal obviously won. Later, Kross targeted one of Sydal’s legs and isolated him for a while until a Moriarty hot tag. A Moriarty Border City Stretch on Kross picked up the win for Moriarty and Sydal.
Tay Conti defeated Ameera
This was Ameera's AEW debut In a short match, Conti dominated with several judo throws, corner kicks and a boss man slam. Conti picked up the win with the TayKO, improving her career record to 52-9.
Gunn Club (w/ Billy Gunn) defeated JB Cole & T.I.M.
This was the AEW debut for Cole and T.I.M. The crowd distracted Gunn Club with "Ass Boys" chants throughout the match, giving T.I.M. and Cole an opportunity to take advantage. In the end, Colten hit the Colt 45 on T.I.M. to pick up the win, upping their record to 40-1.
Frankie Kazarian defeated LaBron Kozone
Kazarian worked Kozone’s neck throughout as a prelude to the chicken wing. Kazarian rolled here with a lot of chops to Kozone’s chest. Kazarian (33-7) eventually got the crossface chicken wing to get the submission victory.
Ruby Soho defeated Kenzie Paige
Soho (12-3) won this short match after hitting No Future. This was an important win for her after losing in the TBS title tournament final to Jade Cargill.
Private Party defeated Chase Emory & Patrick Scott
This was the AEW debut for Emory and Scott. Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy isolated Scott and used it to their advantage. Emory tried to clean house after a hot tag, but Private Party stopped that very quickly and won after hitting Gin and Juice -- their first of 2022 as they haven't been in the ring together since September 2021.
Jay Lethal defeated Alexander Moss
Moss tried to ground Lethal, but the experience of the latter turned things around. Lethal went for a Macho Man-esque elbow drop, but Moss was able to kick out at the last second. The Lethal Injection gave him the win to keep his record spotless in the early goings of 2022.
